Copeland and the Symphony

Local Favorites Collaborate

With the nearing release of their sixth album, Copeland collaborated with the Imperial Symhony Orchestra to lead a memorable symphony orchestra in the Youkey Theatre at the RP Funding Center.

The Lakelander: Between all of this, you’re running and producing at your studio when in Lakeland. How has producing others’ music helped you as an artist?

Aaron Marsh: As a producer I’ve gotten great perspective on developing projects as a whole. Usually with bands, the guitar wants his part louder in the mix, the drummer wants to be turned up, the vocalist wants to shine, etc. I think it’s helped to think about the project as a whole instead of the individual parts. Also, producing has taught me about songwriting in general. A great song is a great song. A recording doesn’t need to be super Hi-Fi and polished if the song is great. A bad performance of a good song is still a good song. I always think of Bob Dylan in that way. His voice wasn’t amazing, but his songwriting impacted the world.

The Lakelander: In this season of your life, why base your music out of Lakeland?

Aaron Marsh: In this season, the answer is family. My two boys. My parents, my brother and sister and their kids are all here. I’m happiest here. I love the town. I’ve always thought that it’s better to create opportunities than to go where someone else has created the opportunities.
